Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.
Robert Kennedy, South Africa 1966.

“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams!
Live the life you’ve imagined” – Henry David Thoreau
"Be happy, not because everything is good,
but because you can see the good side of everything"
Lucerne - Switzerland (2009)
"Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates
profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love."
Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world.
Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.
"Love is the only reality and it is not a mere sentiment.
It is the ultimate truth that lies at the heart of creation."
“Don't be satisfied with stories, how things have gone with others.
Unfold your own myth.”
"I would like my life to be a statement of #loveand#compassion
--and where it isn't, that's where my work lies."
Someday our souls will be one and our union will be forever.
I know that everything I give you comes back to me.
So I give you my life , hoping that you will come back to me.

Pfizer Corp. announced today that Viagra will soon be available in liquid form, and will be marketed by Pepsi Cola as a power beverage suitable for use as a mixer. It will now be possible for a man to literally pour himself a stiff one. Obviously we can no longer call this a soft drink, and it gives new meaning to the names of "cocktails", "highballs" and just a good old-fashioned "stiff drink". Pepsi will market the new concoction by the name of:
MOUNT & DO.
